Have you ever heard of a weight-loss success story that goes like this? "After just two weeks of dieting I achieved my dream size, and I've never looked back!" Neither have we. To make lasting changes to your body, you need a way of eating that you can sustain over the long haul. The best spas know this. They introduce (lucky) guests to food changes and habits that are meant to stick. "We don't offer a quick-fix diet," says Param Dedhia, M.D., a physician at Canyon Ranch. "Instead, we give people tools that they can use forever." This month, experts on nutrition and weight loss at Canyon Ranch are sharing their everyday guidelines and addictive recipes with Dr. Oz The Good Life readers. They'll help you slim down—not just for two weeks, but for the rest of your life.
